|First sunflower. I love having flowers mixed into my seed garden. Sometimes I collect the seeds, sometimes I love the beauty they add, and I always love that they attract pollinators|
mammoth purple cabbage - mine seems to be a little behind to what I see in other folks gardens, no cabbage yet, but I bet it likes these cold nights more than i do!

|red stalk celery. can't say i have ever had much luck growing into celery, but it sure makes a delicious herb|
|mexican sunflower. i started them from seed early this season, and they are flowering quite early as a reward.|
